Italian violin made, in our opinion, by Guglielmo Rossi in Pavia in the late 19th century. Labeled Raffaele and Antonio Gagliano.
Guglielmo Rossi (c. 1875-1949) was the son and pupil of Enrico Rossi (b. 1848). He worked in Pavia, just south of Milan, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Examples of this maker's work are rare and we are honored to be offering this violin in exceptional condition.
